Renee Maureen Parker, 57, of Gainesville, Texas, passed away on October 23rd at the McKinney Medical City. Renee was born on January 20,, 1963 to Jack and Patricia Parker in San Angelo. Her early years of life were spent in Ballinger, before the family moved up to north Texas. Renee graduated from Gainesville High School in 1981. She attended Cooke County College in Gainesville prior to working for Texas Instruments for thirty-three years. She loved her family and worked hard just for them and made sure they had everything they needed. In her younger years she loved to go camping and to ride four-wheelers. She also had a strong bond in her heart with west Texas and enjoyed coming to Rowena, Miles and San Angelo for holidays and other family gatherings. She attended many of our Miles Cotton Festivals throughout the years and was an avid supporter of anything Miles related, including the Bulldogs. She always cried when she and her family had to leave to go back to Gainesville, leaving family and friends behind.
Renee is survived by her mother, Patricia Parker and her sister, Tonya Carroll of Gainesville; her son K.C. Harrison and his wife, Holli, and her two grandchildren, Tatum and Wyatt, all of Azle, Texas; her aunts, Alva Gibson of San Angelo and Lenna (Parker) and husband, Gene Routh of Colorado, as well as several cousins from Colorado and many first, second, and third generation cousins throughout west Texas. Renee was preceded in death by her father, Jack Parker; paternal grandparents, Jack and Sue Parker of Gainesville; maternal grandparents, Alvin and Elsie Redman of Rowena; her Uncle Bill Gibson of San Angelo; and her Uncle Edgar Poehls and her aunt and Godmother, Marilyn Poehls of Miles. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you donate to the Edna Gladney Center for Adoption in Fort Worth, Texas or to a charity of your choice.
